During Celebration III, which is currently underway in Indianapolis right now, Revenge of the Sith director and Star Wars series creator, George Lucas, revealed some interesting developments fans can expect from the space saga once the final Star Wars film comes to the big screen om May 19.
On the release of Revenge of the Sith:
- The all digital version is longer, I believed he metioned a dagobah scene in that version but not in the regular theatrical version.
On the TV front:
- He confirmed 2 TV projects: One is continuing with the Clone Wars cartoons and the other is the live action series.
- 100 episodes
- 1 hour each
- Based on a spinoff character
- Lucas will direct first season
On the DVD front:
- Another box set is in the works: Looks like a 6 disc box set with all episodes 1-6. Possibly a 7th disc, maybe with deleted scenes from the original trilogy. He was asked if he would be changing things again in the movies, prequels or original. He replied that everything is the way he wants them now. As far as the rumored super archival edition due out in 2007 on super hi-def dvd, there is no truth to that.
- He really wants to rerelease the OT back in to theatres via the new 3-D technology.
- No episodes 7, 8, 9.
Thanks to TFN for the update.
